    Okay, we aren't as far along the "riches" path as some–always love reading about your cobs, exvet–but here's my "rags" story:

    In the late summer of 2011 I gave up on the horse I had had for 3...

    Coastal Maine-sunny and mid-50s. Four of us from the barn took a lovely trail ride. :D

    When I did a Training Freestyle, I cantered to X, trotted X to the corner letter, and picked up the new lead in the corner just after the letter.

    It's not typical, but I did read that they were allowing freestyle competitors to wear costumes this year. The message I saw was careful to point out that it was for fun, and that costumes would not...

    On Sunday I worked part of the time without my stirrups on my guy. I just don't feel it's fair to him to take them away until after he's all warmed up. Then my friend asked me to hop on her...

    I like a plain sidepull as well. You can get them in plain leather if you don't like the usual western rope noseband. I'm schooling in one for a while this winter to see if it helps my horse pay more...

    I am not quite your age, and I am experiencing "burn out" with the horse community. For the past several years I have been active in our local dressage gmo. This year has included much drama and...

    Well, it does mean lugging, but we recycle by tossing the "dirty" water in the indoor arena. Of course, you can't just upend it in one spot.

    I wonder if you collected it all in a wheelbarrow if...

    I have a purple Toklat Classic III pad that is close to 20 years old. It has held up to washing and still looks like new after a wash. The only visible wear at this point is some fraying of the...

    Add me. I thought it might be a tick bite when it first showed up, but after reading this, I think it's the same as what everyone here is describing. My horse is a Paint.

    Almost no one braids at our gmo's schooling shows unless there is going to be a photographer available on the grounds. :) And many of our competitors show in a polo shirt.

    A quick google search turns up the term Vitiligo, but in the quick skim I made it was unclear if that is limited to grey horses. Certainly the site I found made it seem so. Good luck getting an...

    It's a deficiency in something...copper maybe? Someone more in the know will chime in, I bet. A good friend of mine had it happen to a couple of her ponies.

    What about trick training? That has started to become popular in my area as there is a young, classically trained dressage instructor who also trick trains her horses. It could be a fun way to engage...

    I didn't know anything about this horse becoming an equitation horse, but I did see Mike Plumb ride him at Groton House oh so many years ago. :)

    RedmondDressage, I agree that I don't want my navy coat to be mistaken for black. I want people to notice that it's blue. I'm just not sure I want it as "light" as that indigo.
